Footloose!
« on: October 06, 2011, 01:54:34 PM »
I am loving this slew of 80's movies getting Gritty Reboots, since I don't have the nostalgia to particularly like any of them, let alone 'fondly remember them as classics'. Every time I see an old movie get a remake, I get to sit back and watch people get nasty at each other =3

...and then they're made a The Thing prequel. And I exploded exactly the same x.x but that's not guna stop me from laughing at the following video!

This is happening. Deal with it.  8-)

I love The Thing I really do and The Blob and The Stuff lol
they are just hilarious classics - can't imagine that they'd try to make a remake of The Thing but seeing as they've done it to just about every other movie ::)

I never liked Footloose, I took dance for years and just seriously thought the freestyle in it was quirky and laughable
So I never got to see it in the cinema but got to watch it on video thanks to my big sisters who drooled and swooned over Kevin Bacon while moaning about Lori Singer being as bad as she ever had been in Fame the series *insert eyeroll*

Part of me is looking forward to this because the dancing seems really cool and yeah, I actually enjoy watching dance movies for the 'dancing' and not the cringeworthy romance that gets dished in for effect ;)

Another remake is the Musketeers - did we really need another one?
again ... insert eyeroll  ;D

The Musketeers one looks vaguely steam-punkish.  For that reason alone, I'm withholding the 'Oh god, not another one' stamp.

Second this.


I think if they do a remake, the directors should do little twists or embellish the storyline to make it theirs. They shouldn't try and live up to the original, they should go...

'Okay, we all loved this movie now lets make something we can call a tribute to a great film.'

Instead of...

'Okay, I want to make money and this franchise is pretty popular so lets whip something up for the masses to consume.'  :-\

I'd rather endure half a dozen more Uwe Boll disasters than have them ruin another old classic with a remake.

A The Thing remake would just balls out suck, unless Kurt Russell was once again in it, and they did all the SFX with animatronics again. Which makes making a remake kind of redundant. But all remakes are redundant, anyway. :D :D

In another thread, it was confirmed that the new 'Thing' is actually about the events that preceded Kurt Russell's encounter with the alien.  Another Antarctic research group defrosted the critter and got nerfed.
